This truck all filled up with all sorts of rubbish. A recycle freak? A spring cleaning macho? Or a dumper? We wondered where all this was going to end up at the end of the day. We hope that it won’t end up like the pile of rubbish in the second photo.

This rubble wall is found in the centre of Lija. Damage is being done to this fig tree due to the poor conditions of the rubble wall. However, the question is, can we protect this fig tree without causing more damage? It can be the storms or even vandalism that are causing the fig tree to surrender, being crushed beneath the stones of the rubble wall. Organisms are suffering as well, having no shelter to live in. Action should be taken immediately.

A lot of us know that trees give us a lot of benefits in our lives. Trees take in carbon dioxide and exchange it to oxygen. However, few of us notice that some trees, like the one shown in the photograph are fighting for survival. Main reasons are taking trees for granted and waste is littering. As shown in the photograph, the litter is not the common litter like paper and plastic bottles (which are very BAD for the environment), but even construction waste like stones and wood. We all can do something to help. The easiest way to help the environment be a better place is by applying the 3 Rs in our daily life – REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.

This photograph was taken at Mistra. Because of all the litter found in this area, water cannot pass from this small valley. This results in flooding and also in loss of soil. Although a lot of awareness is given to help our environment to be a better place, some of us still think this is not serious enough and they take the environment for granted. Action to clean this narrow valley, which is getting all blocked up with litter, must be taken immediately and penalties must be given to those who break the law by throwing their waste outside.

Most of Malta’s rainwater runs straight to the sea and goes to waste. The European Union, emphasises the importance of Malta taking immediate action about this problem. As a reason of wastage of rainwater, the building of new reservoirs is being proposed. As seen in this photograph, action should be taken to use this rainwater; as it’s a shame that 70,000,000 litres of surface run-off water is wasted and not being wisely used.
